Cancer to 5K
At the June 2018 meeting of 100 Women Who Care Boston, Cancer to 5K was selected to receive our donation of over $3,500. This wonderful organization was nominated by Jenn Parker, a first time attendee at 100 Women Who Care events!
The mission of Cancer to 5K is to change lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, impacted by cancer.
Cancer to 5K provides a free 12-week training program designed for cancer survivors regardless of age, treatment status, or physical ability. Survivor participants run/walk alongside running coaches & volunteer “sherpas” with the ultimate goal of completing a 5K goal race. While everyone’s cancer journey is different, many individuals can benefit from a weekly exercise routine. There moto is... Take your life back from cancer… one mile at a time!
